Profile

Ingo Venzke is Professor of International Law and Social Justice at the Department of International and European Law and Director of the Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL). His teaching includes LL.M. courses on International Trade Law, International Dispute Settlement, and Research Methods. 

Ingo has held visiting appointments at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Jindal Global Law School. He was a Hauser Research Scholar at New York University (NYU), a Visiting Scholar at the Cegla Center for the Interdisciplinary Research of the Law, Tel Aviv University, and at the Center for the Study of Law and Society, UC Berkeley. He was a long-term research fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg. 

He is Editor-in-Chief of the Leiden Journal of International Law (together with Eric de Brabandere) and member of the Advisory Board of the Berlin Social Science Centre (WZB).

Research

Ingo's work has focused on the theory and practice of interpretation in international law and on the different functions that international courts play in global governance. More recently, he has carried out research into critical moments in the history of international law. He now places particular emphasis on international law’s role in the creation of past or present conditions of social (in)justice. Furthermore, he contributes to the research cluster on International Public Authority (anchored at the MPIL).
